Rock and water

The usual photographs of the Peak District feature well known views that tourists know. The Quarried project showed that there was much more to the peak than the usual overcrowded honey spots. With this project I wanted to explore some of the more natural landscape off the beaten track to produce less hackneyed images.

I deliberately chose to use a Mamiya C330F film camera that uses 120 film. The negatives are 6cm square. The choice of monochrome films, Ilford FP4 and HP5, was also a deliberate choice.

The project was also a time for me to do what I wanted, a release from the stricter remit of Quarried. This gallery shows only a sample of the images produced.
